West Coast utilities to figure out how to charge electric big rigs from Mexico to Canada

Thirty-three utilities from three West Coast states have launched a study to assess what it would take to install electric charging stations along the 5 Freeway for long-haul trucks traveling between the Mexican and Canadian borders, they announced Thursday. Although battery-powered medium- and heavy-duty trucks have barely begun on-road service in a few states, many manufacturers are testing additional prototypes that could expand their reach in one or two years, experts say. The largest utilit...

Soul Serenade: The Soul Children, “The Sweeter He Is”

We’ve heard about one-hit wonders and even no-hit wonders but what about groups that had multiple hits and still manage to be forgotten when people talk about classic soul? The Soul Children recorded for Stax Records at the height of the label’s popularity, they had three Top 10 pop hits, and they were mentored by the legendary songwriting/producing team of Isaac Hayes and David Porter. And yet they’re often not even part of the discussion of the glory days at Stax. Hayes and Porter put the Soul...

Warren national-monument pledge could appeal to Western Dems

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Elizabeth Warren is headed to Utah on Wednesday after promising to restore broader public lands protections for two of the state’s high-profile national monuments if elected president.

5 ways to discover omotenashi

W e in the West may think we know the meaning of hospitality, but once you compare it to the Japanese tradition of omotenashi, you’ll feel the true definition must have been lost in translation. Forget the Western way, where the giver may be acting hospitable with the aim of gaining something in return. At the heart of omotenashi, instead, is a hospitality focused solely on the recipient. It’s a host attending to the needs of a guest before they can even be vocalized. With the concept ingraine...

Your Air Force Can't Afford an F-35? Buy This Fighter Jet Instead

Take a look. While complex high-end jet fighters like the Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, Dassault Rafale and Eurofighter Typhoon dominate the headlines when it comes to the global fighter market, not every country needs or even wants a top-of-the-line warplane. While some nations—particularly those that have poor relations with the West—might opt for Russian or Chinese-built machines, there is a sizeable market for lower cost alternatives. It is this market that Sweden’s Saab JAS-39 ...

We Must Reclaim Nationalism From the BJP

This is of The Rationalist, my column for the Times of India. The man who gave us our national anthem, Rabindranath Tagore, once wrote that nationalism was “a great menace.” He went on to say, “It is the particular thing which for years has been at the bottom of India’s troubles.” Not just India’s, but the world’s: In his book The Open Society and its Enemies, published in 1945 as Adolf Hitler was defeated, Karl Popper ripped into nationalism, with all its “appeals to our tribal instincts, ...

Bret Easton Ellis turns to nonfiction to talk Trump, Kanye West, ‘American Psycho’ and our whiny culture in ‘White’

By the fall of 1990, Bret Easton Ellis had enjoyed the success of his debut novel “Less Than Zero,” seen it adapted by Hollywood, and published a second novel all before he’d turned 27. And then “American Psycho” happened. Or more accurately, at first it didn’t happen: Just weeks before publication, Simon & Schuster canceled the book amid outcry over the violence in the black satire about a yuppie Wall Street serial killer. And then it was back on. Knopf plucked “American Psycho” off its rival p...

How We Can Fight Prejudice Against Muslims

During the terrorist attacks on September 11th, I was a middle school student in a suburb outside Atlanta, Georgia. I recall my teacher breaking down and crying, and lots of students going home early, even though I stayed through the school day. What I remember most from the days that followed was the outpouring of support from friends and the community, most of which was not Muslim like my family was. I remember my father telling me about a friend of his, a Southern man, assuring him that if a...

Whicker: Running an NBA team is no Magic trick

This wasn’t a basketball season. It was a Netflix series. And maybe it shouldn’t end just because the playoffs are starting and the Lakers aren’t in them.

Anthony Davis could become the national spokesman in the fight against load management. Until then, Magic Johnson has decided to curtail his two-year run as President of the Lakers. He sounded like he didn’t want to make the tou...

"So when I say time has a race, I'm saying that the way that we position ourselves in relationship to time comes out of histories of European and Western thought."

"And a lot of the way that we talk about time really finds its roots in the Industrial Revolution. So prior to that, we would talk about time as merely passing the time. After the Industrial Revolution, suddenly, we begin to talk about time as spending time. It becomes something that is tethered to monetary value. So when we think about hourly wage, we now talk about time in terms of wasting time or spending time. And that's a really different understanding of time than, you know, like seasonal ...
